I  just woke up. Did the serial abuser or the bigot win? Oh, the abuser? OK. Bigot is just as bad, though.

As the world gathers to watch the Fight of the Century tonight, the elephant in the room is that defending champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a well-documented history of domestic abuse. But while Mayweather’s opponent Manny Pacquiao may not beat women, he does happen to be a Bible-thumping politician who thinks gay marriage will usher in a modern-day “Sodom and Gomorrah” and opposes affordable contraceptives for poor women with little access to modern health care.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that as a politician, Pacquiao supported pushing the Bible over the health and well-being of his constituents. Slate’s Joshua Keating went so far as to write that while the congressman notoriously only shows up to do his job as a legislator a handful of days per year, that might actually be a good thing, since his apparent disinterest in lawmaking actually kept him from being a more effective opponent of social progression.
